We, the participants in the Third International Congress on Technical and Vocational
Education and Training (TVET), met in Shanghai, People’s Republic of China, from 14 to 16
May 2012, and reviewed the major trends and policy developments in TVET since the
Second International Congress held in Seoul, Republic of Korea, in 1999. We discussed
challenges faced by TVET systems and explored appropriate responses aimed at building a
better understanding of the contribution of TVET to sustainable development and at
defining strategic directions for cooperation among countries and with the international
community to support TVET for all, within the framework of the overall efforts in favour of
access, inclusion and equity, education for sustainable development and a culture of peace.
We express our sincere gratitude to the Government of the People’s Republic of China for
hosting the Congress and for their warm welcome and generous hospitality.
